[SATLUG] weirdness

I'm not sure if I have a software issues or a hardware issue...

Browser (doesn't matter which one) keeps crashing.  Can't capture 'why', 
just yet...

This evening (just a few mins ago) was playing a game of backgammon 
(gnubg) and the thing just quit on me. Looked in /var/log/messages and 
came up with:
2016-10-19T20:30:38.766285-05:00 pawpa kernel: [ 9198.084095] traps: 
gnubg[5611] general protection ip:7f96644ac037 sp:7fff4f0a36b8 error:0 
in libdrm_intel.so.1.0.0[7f96644a6000+1f000]traps:

Been having issues with certain pages and most certainly, any video 
either refuses to load, or causes the system to crash, but I can view 
youtube videos, so that rules out flash (dosent it?)

 From kinfocenter:

It's a relatively new system, but I know, with the lack of QC these 
days, and all this thing is doing, who know what imbalance may have 
taken place. The symptoms have started and ramped up in the span of 
about a week.

I'm leaning towards a problem with the on-board video, but I'm 
entertaining any and all ideas.

Thanks, -Geoff
